I'm into the second day of a workshop on the process of recovery as it relates to mental illness. There are a lot of challenges to current thinking. I'm already seeing how the principles relate to so many areas of life. Just as people with mental illness don't want to be stuck with a service provider that is simply trying to force them into some service delivery mould, but to treat them as real people who have a right to move forward into a new life, so people going to a church have the right to deserve something more than a service delivery approach to church life. I'll develop that thought sometime in the future.
